A Wrong Turn
The following was written for a Wordle challenge over at Midlovemisery’s Menagerie.
Words for the wordle are as follows:
5. Thersitical- scurrilous; foul-mouthed; grossly abusive.
I had to make a purchase today
but the shop was quite a distance away
In my mind, it was a fantasy
to buy or trade was costly in actuality
Finding the street, I made a bad turn
Step-monster was thersitical, said I’d never learn
Half of me wanted to cry
Thinking I might flail, wither, and die
Would I ever learn the ropes?
Learn to drive, was there any hope?
